GUR: Putin is preparing Russians for life at war
Putin realises there is no turning back.
Andrey Yusov, a representative of the Main Directorate of Intelligence (GUR) of the Defence Ministry, said this during a TV marathon.
Yusov said that for Russia, a protracted war was anything longer than three days in which the plan was to "take Kiev, overthrow the legitimate government and raise the Russian tricolour rag".
Putin understands that there is no going back and, in fact, as long as this war continues, his regime and his entourage have an opportunity to make money by sending their still citizens to slaughter.
A spokesman for the SDU also noted:
Ukraine needs to stop the war as soon as possible and this can be done by defeating Ukraine and reclaiming our territory to the internationally recognised borders as of 1991, bringing criminals to justice, paying reparations and reforming Russia to a state where it will not be a threat to all mankind.
